As Different as NIght and Day

Catching Up for Tag Tuesday.  Last week's theme was "wedding".  In my comfort zone, I made a vintage tag.  This week's theme is complementary colors.  I chose purple and yellow.  I went totally out of my comfort zone and literally played with ink.  The two tags are as different as night and day.

Your tags really are different as day and night, and though you weren't in your "comfort zone," both tags are just excellent! So glad you visited my blog. I am following you now and would love it if you would follow me! :-) I so want to link up with other paper artists who create well- designed and high-quality work. I look forward to more of your tags in the future! (I'm planning to play with ink next week myself.)

I love the glamour of the chic monochrome wedding tag, but there's also something really delicious about those bold, beautiful colours. Lovely tags!
